I currently have an offer from Leeds uni which is an entry into a foundation year. This means I will be doing a four year course, five if I choose to do a year in industry which I probably will.
On the other hand I have an offer from uni of Birmingham for entry into the first year.

PROS OF LEEDS UNI
- its close to home so I wont have to move out = saving money
- Its a top 10 uni for accounting and finance.
- foundation year will better prepare me for the maths aspect, which I need guidance on seeing as though I did not take A level maths.
CONS OF LEEDS UNI
- Have to do a extra year, which I have already taken out a gap year meaning that I will leave uni at 25.
- Probably would have less of an enjoyable uni experience since I wont be moving out.

PROS OF BIRMINGHAM UNI
- Won't have to take an extra year out meaning I will leave uni at 24.
- May have a better uni experience.
CONS OF BIRMINGHAM UNI
- May struggle more with the course.
- Will have to move out which will be financially constraining.
- Not the best at socialising and I do not have much confidence so I may struggle having a good relationship with roomates.
- Would be in more debt.
- Top 15 university for accounting and finance (which is still good, but not as good as Leeds)

Based from these points, which university do you think I should go to. I feel that I should go to leeds university since it is a better uni, I will save more money, and I wouldn't have to worry as much about making friends or having a good relationship with roomates. Also, because of my religion, I won't be drinking alcohol or going out clubbing which is a huge part of the uni experience, meaning that it may be pointless moving out to birmingham.
I would love to know what you guys would do, if you were in my situation.

Thank you.

Visit both, talk to students on the course and then make your mind up. Think about what sort of uni experience you want.
